According to Mopar Insiders, the Dodge Hornet will be Dodge's first production PHEV vehicle. It will launch in 2022 as a 2023 model and pretty much be the successor to the Journey in Dodge's lineup.

It will be using the same platform and powertrain as the Alfa Romeo Tonale.


Among the brands getting an electrified vehicle variant is the Dodge brand. During the EV Day 2021 presentation, Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis talked about the brand embracing electrification for its performance line of muscle cars starting in 2024. However, this particular vehicle will be one of 9 new plug-in electric (PHEV) vehicles for the company and set to launch in 2022, making it Dodge’s first production PHEV vehicle.

According to our sources, the vehicle in question is the upcoming 2023 Dodge Hornet SUV. You might remember, we briefly touched on the new Hornet in a previous post. The new compact SUV will be a similar size to the current Jeep Compass and will be based on the upcoming Alfa Romeo Tonale. In fact, it will be manufactured alongside the Tonale in Italy. That’s right, an Italian-built Dodge SUV.

Internally known as “GG” or “5920”, the new Hornet will ultimately be a replacement for the recently discontinued Dodge Journey, despite it only being a two-row variant.

But just because the Hornet is compact, doesn’t mean it won’t be fun to drive. One of our sources has indicated that the Hornet will be equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder found under the hood of a lot of popular Chrysler Group vehicles. The powerplant delivers 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque in vehicles like the Wrangler, proving that it will be no slouch. The 2.0-liter is also can be found in the electrified Wrangler 4xe PHEV, leading us to believe that the 2.0-liter could follow the same route as the Wrangler 4xe’s PHEV system.
